Dutch iris~Today's Flowers 022711

No, this isn't from my garden, but it is from my neighbor's. She's a professional landscaper and I LOVE to wander over to her yard to practice my photography skills (or lack thereof...)! She always has something over there which I don't have in my limited planting area and these irises were blooming the other day and the sun was out, so off I went! She doesn't mind me invading her front garden and we talk a lot about planting, seeds, and what grows in the desert. Today's Flowers for Sunday, February 27, 2011. I hope this brings a little bit of sunshine and warmth to your part of the world! Thank you for all who commented that these, indeed, were Dutch irises! I really didn't know WHAT they were, but I certainly do enjoy looking at them!

Lily~Macro Flower Saturday~022611

Hubby and I went to Home Depot today and while he was looking at his stuff, I wandered around through the garden center. I found some lillies and stopped to look at them.

Iceland poppies~Macro Flowers Saturday 021911

No, these aren't my Iceland poppies! :-( They belong to my neighbor, who is a landscaper. )Sometimes, however, I sneak over into her yard and take pics of HER flowers! (tee hee!). We're good friends and neighbors, so she doesn't mind! I thought I'd also sneak a photo of her front yard, so you can view it. Isn't it beautiful? Macro Flowers Saturday for February 18, 2011.

Sunflowers~Finally~Today's Flowers 021311

A couple of my sunflowers are now in full bloom and since I didn't go visit my horses yesterday, I stayed home all day. I'm still recovering from the bronchitis I recently had in December and my energy level is still low. So, I stayed home and puttered around. The bottom photo is showing the fence along the west side of our front yard. The sunflowers get full sun all day except for the afternoon. NONE of the ones I planted in last year's space sprouted, so I'm thankful that I found a new spot for them. Once they are done, I think I'll plant some tithonia.
